Zunesis, an IT solution partner headquartered in Denver, hosted their fifth annual Night of Miracles on Saturday night, November 12th. The event was held at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and featured a range of speakers, including Habitat homeowner Ann Padilla-Parras, 9-time New York Times bestselling author Don Yaeger, and this year’s partner family who received the keys to their new home at the event.
Night of Miracles is an annual gala where the goal is to raise enough money to fund one home for a deserving Denver family. The tradition of Night of Miracles was started because Zunesis not only wanted to give back to their community through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, but they also wanted to create an avenue for their valued IT partners in the community to give back as well. Thus, the primary source of funding for the event every year comes from corporate donations provided by Zunesis as well as their IT partners.
When asked about the event, Zunesis CEO, Steve Shaffer, commented, “It’s one of my favorite nights of the year. To see the look on our partner family’s face, the gratitude of the parents and the excitement of their children, when we hand them the keys to their new home is one of the most rewarding experiences. Habitat for Humanity is a fantastic organization, and we’re honored to partner with them.”
This year’s event was a huge success, raising beyond the amount required to build a Habitat home. All additional proceeds also go to Habitat and contribute to even more homes. Megan Shaffer, Marketing Manager at Zunesis, noted at the event, “In this one room, we have Zunesis employees, business partners, customers, and friends all coming together to achieve one goal: and that goal is to change a family’s life forever. It’s an honor to be a part of this.”
The bar is set high for Night of Miracles 2017, and Zunesis is eager to rise to the challenge.
